Do Dudley labs have longer noses than usual?

    I have an 8-week-old Dudley lab and his nose is tiny but quite pointy and I’m wondering if this is an indicator that he is going to have a longer nose when he’s grown?

    I'm no expert in Lab genetics, but I don't believe Dudleys have any impact on body shape. Field style Labs tend to have longer noses than bench style. See Coopers pic when she was a pup. As a full grown dog she can hold two tennis balls in her mouth with ease.
